It is common knowledge that if you crash your car you mustn´t move it: you must call the cops and – if you have insurance – your insurance company. The cops will go to the scene of the “crime”, take measurements and pictures, and will let you know when you can move your vehicle.

The following is a sad story – a triumph of evil over virtue! A client of this insurance brokerage, a Scottish youth, was driving home in the dead of night in his VW, and another car came full speed out of a side street and cannoned into him – nobody hurt.

My client´s cel phone didn´t work, and none of the five lads in the other car admitted to having a phone, so the young Scot locked up his car and went off on foot seeking a public phone. He eventually found one and made the calls. |

When he got back to the scene of the accident he found that the positions of the cars had been switched, so that it looked like HE had come out of the side street and was therefore to blame for the collision.

The lads must have picked up the VW and manhandled it around – quite a feat, particularly for people in their cups!

There are two morals to this story: (1) don´t leave the scene of an accident, and (2) keep a functional cel phone with you when you are driving.
